Abstract

Psychological support groups for Black freshmen were developed to assist students in the transition to a predominantly White university environment. White and Black coleaders chosen from graduate students in counselor training programs provided training workshops and supervision throughout the course of the group experience. The groups developed a behavioral and task-oriented emphasis. Implications are discussed for both the retention of minority students and the unique contribution of such programs to professional training.
